back we want to talk about some of the new laws about marijuana and colorado specifically. is there a new sheriff in town? >> do you think that marijuana should be legalized? >> i wouldn't go that far. >> let denver serve as a beacon of hope for those who know and want to know what true treatment is all about. compelling true stories. >> jack, how old are you? >> nine. >> this is what 27 tons of marijuana looks like.

of lawfulness of the illegal operation directed against a u.s. citizen, a senior operational leader of al qaeda. or an associated force. this is committee confidential but it is not classified. the fact of the matter is it is a 16 page, very hostile and -- very thoughtful and very impressive opinion, and yet, it cannot go into the public domain. i cannot ask you about some of the factors of this opinion even here and i think that's a mistake. i think the world we are now living in is so different and precise that the legal underpinnings for action really are important. secondly, it is one thing for a president to ask for a legal opinion prior to something that is ongoing. maybe even on going. it seems to me that after words, -- after words, -- afterwards, we should have the opportunity to assess the legality of that and if necessary, be able to clarify law, change a law, do whatever a constitutional legislative body does. i would just ask you to take a look at this. we have now -- i just got a note. it has been release now because it was leaked first. so -- [chuckles] >> that is one way of get
government to carrying out activities in violation of international law and the domestic laws of many other countries. for north korea these criminal activities are viewed as necessary to maintain the power of the regime with no regard for the fact that they are corrosive to international law and order. so the question is, what steps can we take to combat north korea's illicit activities, and can our efforts to prevent these activities be used to pressure north korea to abandon its nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs? now, i just heard on the news this morning that the agreement has been made ostensibly with china to punish north korea for its missile-launching nuclear tests. i hope that china will not do what it's done in the past and agree to sanctions and then just erode those sanctions so the sanctions really never took hold. i hope that china will finally understand that the north korean regime is a threat to stability in that region of the world and in many regions of the world, because as chairman royce pointed out, korea, north korea is a rogue state helping countries lik
will only function efficiently if participants believe all laws will be enforced consistently and v violators will be punished to the full extent of the law. there should not be one set of rules that applies to wall street and another set for the rest of us. the department of justice wrote to the senators and said no corporate entity, no matter how large, is immune from prosecutions. prosecutors must determine whether there would be disproportionate harm to investors, pension holders, customers and employees and others not personally culpable. i can tell you the two senators called the response from the department of justice aggressively invasive was the term. they don't like that the department of justice didn't reply to a number of their specific questions about how often this has happened. they say they are going to ask eric holder when he comes to capitol hill this week. >> according to news reports, senator jeff merkley of oregon is annoyed at the bank hsbc and says not only will they not bust the institution they won't bust the senior bank executives. is that true? >> there is
years off from writing a budget which of course is their lawful duty. i think there is not enough print sometimes dedicated to imnovemberable democrats when they're, when they happen to be doing nothing. maybe this will help that. bill: let me put a fine point what he said. jerry, you need to understand, referring to senator moran, we're not going to do anything until after the election. bob, why would that be? >> for a couple reasons. first of all, this was during the time of the budget control act where they set up the super-committee from which all things were going to spring. you couldn't move anything having to do with finances until that committee made a decision or didn't make a decision as it turns out. that's one. and two, in when you move up to election year, presidential election year particularly, nobody does anything that will upset the applecart. bill: but mary katherine's point is you have your priorities. if you want to pursue something like confirmation of jack lew you can get that done in one afternoon. >> that's right. bill: the other big stuff when you have to show y
the law. but, now, a justice on that same court says the voting rights act, a law passed to help undo the legacy of dread scott, is "a racial entitlement." we all know that efforts to restrict the vote are well-under way. in north carolina, house republicans are voting on a new voter id bill. in wisconsin, a new bill would limit the hours of a in-person absentee ballot. charges have been filed against two volters tied with the gop. that's right, voter fraud is real. it's just being committed by republicans. yes, we need to continue to have laws that will protect fairness and protect equal rights. why do we need the government to do these laws? because tchs bad laws the government did that caused the problem in the first place. government must undo what government did. thanks for watching. i'm al sharpton. "hardball" starts right now. blank blarng. >> beating around the bush. let's play "hardball.">> beatin. let's play "hardball." ♪ >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start tonight with this. bush. how long have we heard that name in republican politics? bush.
to residency. for him, jeb bush argues this isn't about the particular but to get it signed into law. >> so do you think there's a significant difference between marco rubio who clearly is on board for a path way to citizenship? >> there is a difference in terms of the proposal that jeb bush makes but i think ultimately if jeb bush were in the senate or were the president, i don't think it would matter. i think he's showing that he's flexible. some might call it a flip-flop and as far as jeb bush is concerned, we need to do something, something needs to be accomplished. he doesn't seem to be bothered by the criticism. his position is, look, the system we have right now does not work. whatever we come forward and propose as a solution is better than the unworkable reality of today. >> we'll have more during the 6:00 p.m. hour including the possibility, he's leaving it open, that he may run for presidency in 2016. is there a third bush potentially in the run for president? we'll talk about that. thank you, jake. >> thank you, wolf. >>> two states have legalized drug use. washington needs to crac
or too bad to be true, i think, and the fact that you've got law enforcement saying that they cannot verify this points to, to me, to the many examples, not just at oberlin, i don't want to single out my alma mater, but it's happene many, many times over the decades where things are hatched by progressives who are trying to prove that institutional racism exists in their lives when really, the racism comes from these leftists who are segregating the kids and raising their race consciousness in a very poisonous way. >> megyn: i want to tell the viewers, according to the guardian, the lieutenant from the oberlin police says the only witness to the alleged kkk sighting may have been mistaken. they could not verify the claims and arrested two students, but police say it's unclear if it was motivated by racial hatred or if they just wanted to make a commentary on free speech. there is a bit of a leaping to conclusions. i mean, people get, you know -- it evokes a viceral reaction when you see the n-word and the f-word and hear about somebody wearing a kkk robe walking by the african center
. i know what we do know. i bet you that this facility laid down the law to all its employees, don't do this. don't do that. because you could be sued. and we don't want -- we want to go outside this narrow area -- we don't want to go outside this narrow area at all because we worry about a lawsuit. you know that's the case. >> if that is the case, it's reprehensible. particularly in california one would think that a patient in a healthcare facility would have their life saved and the healthcare facility would not be concerned about a lawsuit -- charles: the woman who made the 911 call at this point she's got to feel like, you know, totally distraught. does she have a lawsuit against her employer? stuart: good one. >> i don't know who made the 911 call. she doesn't have a lawsuit against her -- charles: she could say my employer stopped me from helping this woman, i thought i would be under some legal jeopardy, and it turns out i wouldn't have been and now i have to live this for the rest of my life. >> the only conceivable lawsuit is the estate of the woman who died. the woman is
: a tale of two states." it's about how tougher laws are forcing californians to buy guns in nevada. >>> the oakland tribune has the story new law has schools scram j for supplies. it's about a new california law banning school fees for classroom items and activities and requiring students to bring their own materials needed for school. the law was created after the state was sued over the fees. california's constitution guarantees the right to a free public education. >>> income inequality in america has received renewed attention with president obama's push for a higher minimum wage. that proposal has been roundly opposed by republicans who say it will kill jobs. but my next guest argues in a new op-ed the gop should lead the charge against inequality with major tax reforms and investing in our infrastructure. joining me now is sheila bair, former share woman of the fdic and offer of "bull by the horns." sheila, a welcome i tell you i love the title of your op-ed. you add one vowel and it changes everything. i love that. with party to parody. you're argument really focuses on how
instead. >>> the president who signed the defense of marriage act into law now says it's time to put doma asunder. >>> and jurors in the ex-rated murder trial of jodi arias let the defendant know exactly what they think of her. and this is long before they reach a verdict on her life or death. >>> we begin this hour with the first step on a very long road to justice for a man, american federal civilian justice, for a son-in-law of osama bin laden, whom the united states is accusing of con spir conspiracy to kill us. he had been out of sight for years only to surface last week in the middle east and then wind up in the hands of the cia. and at that point, was really easy, key have had a one way ticket to guantanamo bay. and some people on capitol hill think that is exactly where that man belongs. but instead, he just appeared like any other accused criminal in a federal court in manhattan facing a one count indictment that could send him to prison for the rest of his life. what do you think he pled? probably not surprise, not guilty. and he's due back in court on april 8. susan candiotti w
in atlanta. the cuts once considered too painful to consider are now the law of the land. president obama and congressional republicans could not reach a compromise to avoid the $85 billion in automatic cuts. they will not happen all at once, but instead they will come over time. they are pointing fingers at each other over their failure to reach a deal. >> probably would be a lot better ways to reduce that spending than by the formula approach of the sequester. but we don't intend to spend a penny less as promised to the american people. >> these cuts are not smart, they will hurt our economy and cost us jobs. and congress can turn them off at any time as soon as both sides are willing to compromise. >> the cuts will hit different agencies in different ways. and there has been some confusion over how they will take effect. one good example is this, the faa held a conference to back away earlier this week, that 160 air traffic controller towers around the country would have to close on april one. others listening in were told the initial announcements of the cuts had not been authorized.
the court's decision on marriage? a constitutional law expert at nyu. he's here with me this afternoon. good to see you, professor. >> good to see you, craig. >> proposition 8 has been battered around in california courts. what's behind the timing of the supreme court being asked to hear this case now? >> well, it's just gone up the system in the regular stately way that these cases go so that the trial in this case is actual held in early 2010. there was a 9th circuit opinion and now there's an appeal to the supreme court and so we'll hear the the ultimate decision and oral arguments will be heard in the 26th and we'll hear the ultimate decision in the court in june. how unusual is it for an administration to be involved in a supreme court case like this? >> not that unusual. the brief itself talks about prior cases in which it's gotten involved in precisely this way. >> when that happens, does it lend any more credence to the argument? >> i think it definitely does. i think the government will now be allowed oral argument time in the court so we'll be able to address the justices about whe
: well, jan brewer did was take the language from the federal law and apply it to her state. that's really all she did. >> i don't know if she is who you're talking about, but last word. >> let's just say we have a positive agenda rather than constantly appearing to be reactionary when we're not. >> sean: guys, good to see you. governor, a rare appearance, get you up here. good to see you, clint. >> thanks, sean. >> sean: that's all the time we have this evening. and thank you for being with us, let not your heart be troubled. greta is next to go on the record. see you here tomorrow night. greta, take it away. >> greta: tonight, president obama says he's not a dictator. but rush limbaugh says the commander-in-chief left something out. what is it? >> barack obama is not interested in compromise, bipartisanship, getting along. >> i am not a dictator, i'm the president. >> the only thing obama cares about and the only thing he's ever cared about is no opposition. >> i am not a dictator, i'm the president. >> every time i hear him say he's not a dictator, he doesn't complete the state
they have tight gun laws, they're not closing down jails, they're opening up jails. in texas we have 5,000 beds freed up because crime is down in texas. so fast cars, guns, texas, it all works together. we're proud to be americans. we're proud of the first and second amendment and we will reach out, pray for to help the families of victims of crime anywhere. >> fast cars and guns. let's turn to tim. what is your reaction to that? fast cars and guns. >> this is completely disproportionate to have a single car at the daytona 500 for sandy hook relief, versus an entire race sponsored by the nra. i also -- i don't understand the association -- nascar is so much more infinitely popular than the nra. there are nascar fans all over the country, nascar fans in every political persuasion. the identification of nascar, i think even in texas with supporters of, i think, the nra's, what has become the nra's increasingly extreme stance on gun rights, is, i think, there's just a huge contradiction there. >> let me ask on that point, dan rather, you like nascar. do you have a problem with this? >> i
't those types? >> yes, but making it a law bounding, requiring the treasury department to actually take action i think would make a difference. >> okay. that's my only question. thanks, mr. chairman. >> thank you. we go now to ms. gabbard. >> thank you to our panel here for being here today. i represent the second congressional district in hawaii, which as we have seen for the last couple of lunches, experts have testified that hawaii a low whistle of our northwestern states are within range within missile range of north korea. so this is an issue that's very real for us, not only as a state but also because of our military presence there and strategic location within our national defense. i'm wondering your view of what the current estimate is realistically of when north korea may have a warhead missile combination that could strike the united states, as well as your assessment of our missile defense and we can do to prevent this from occurring, or at least slowing down their progress? >> well, i believe they are quite a ways from having that capability, congresswoman. i was talking ab
districts by law just about now. and even the virginia senators, they have no interest in voting against this. the state government is not their government, and they are going to lose -- they're going to lose votes if they do not re-enact the voting rights act. even the name of it is wonderful. who is going to vote against that in the future? >> this time it was justice elena kagan who rebutted his arguments in her exchange with the shelby county attorney. listen to this. >> you said the problem has been solved, but who gets to make that judgment really? is it you, is it the court, or is it congress? >> well, it's certainly not me. >> that's a good answer. i was hoping you would say that. >> but i think the question is congress can examine it, congress makes a record, it is up to the court to determine whether the problem indeed has been solved and whether the new problem, if there is one -- >> well, that's a big, new power that you are giving us, that we have the power now to decide whether racial discrimination has been solved? >> dale, it occurs to me that justice scalia has had that
to suspend the $16.4 trillion debt limit. they would pass a law to dock lawmakers' pay unless the democratally-controlled senate passes a budget, which it hasn't done in nearly four years. >> i think that was a gimmick. just giving barack obama a blank check for four months is inane as far as i'm concerned. >> reporter: he told me that he is very concerned about cuts in the military and says we need to increase the spending in the military and there is a better way to apply the cuts. >> eric: on the other side, john, president obama blames the republicans that, john boehner won't sit dun to talk about the fiscal situation. americans are sick of this going from crisis to crisis. what can come down the road, do you think? >> reporter: paul brown says there is a better way to do this. and in fact, that may be in the works. despite what you heard gene sperling just say about when republicans feel the depth and the pain from these cuts, maybe they will get religion. they are already at work on an alternative to this sequester as laid out, the budget chief paul ryan says he has agre
with a reason to pass bicycling law. according to science, he's completely wrong one study said that driving car produces ten times more co2 emissions than riding a bike. >>> nbc meteorologist bill karins joins us now tracking the weather. another storm. >> the very unpopular -- >> why do you say that? >> who wants to hear about a snowstorm in the march. this morning the snowstorm is going to move across the country over the next 3 1/2, 4 days. it's already on its way. this is just the beginning of this storm, today the worst travel, north dakota and minnesota. and portions of iowa. temperatures are cold enough for snow to accumulate. winter storm watches in northern portions of virginia, including washington, d.c. and baltimore. an updated winter storm warning for the greater chicago area, this is the target zone of this storm as it makes its trek to the east coast. chicago, for all snow. lot more questions about how much snow is going to accumulate. it may mix with rain for coastal areas of virginia. this swath of snow. the white is three to six inches. widespread through minneapolis down thro
. >>> and a dramatic turn this week, osama bin laden's son-in-law appearing in a federal court this week in new york, very close to where al-qaeda brought down the world trade center towers. sulaiman abu ghaith pled guilty to a plot to kill americans. he was captured abroad. and the decision to take him to new york versus the facility in guantanamo bay is raising controversy. joining us, peter bergen, and jeff toobin, first, what do we know about sulaiman abu ghaith? >> well, the indictment against him, he is described as a spokesperson. and one thing the government has to do as the case proceeds to trial is show that he actually advanced a conspiracy to kill americans. didn't just advocate or just give rhetorical support. the current charges against him are pretty minimal against him on that score. although the government will have many months to spell out the case against him. >> he was the one that appeared in videos in 2001 in september, 2001, warning the west, warning muslims stay away from the united states. stay away from those high rise buildings, don't get on planes. we're coming after you.
retirement. a sharp contrast to the real harm inflected on seniors by the president's health care law. that's their quote. no longer 55? it's in or near retirement, which can mean whatever paul ryan wants it to mean. moderate republicans in the gop a little bit nervous tonight. an anonymous republican lawmaker who was in the meeting with ryan told "the hill" republicans made commitments to their constituents at age 55. if they go back on their promise, it will be problematic for many of them. well, that's good news for democrats. you can't trust these guys anyway. john boehner, you think he cares? no, he doesn't care. when he was asked about the new medicare plan, he completely brushed it off. >> i think we'll let them work it out, and we'll see what outcome they get. >> sure, let them work it out. boehner doesn't have to commit to any changes. he feels extremely safe. as long as house districts are gerrymandered in his favor, and they are. this is why republicans continue to obstruct with plans like the ryan budget. they don't want to change the status quo when the rich are doing so doggon
and live with my relatives in newark for a while. and i was able to go to rutgers law school the next year because of a national defense student loan. so i'm running, because of the opportunities that i had -- i'm under no illusion, if i grew up now into the circumstances that i was born into, i wouldn't be here as a state senator running for the governor of new jersey. >> senator, one of the local papers said you should not be written off, and having just heard your introductory remarks of this campaign, i don't think you can be written off in new jersey. and they said, the local papers said that you are the anti-christie. how do you see yourself as the anti-christie? >> well, you know, i see myself as, there's certainly a stark contrast between myself and governor christie. governor christie supports. his idea of jump-starting the economy is to propose a trickle-down income tax cut last area. and me and his budget addressed this year, he stated his support for it again. i support property tax cuts for everyone else. you know, he coddles millionaires while the rest of new jerseyans are st
the laws can remain but cannot obtain the cherished fruits of citizenship. to do otherwise would signal once again that people who circumvent the system can still obtain the full benefit of american citizenship. let's see what he told chuck todd. let's listen to it. >> remember this is a proposal we attempted to put out prior to the election to create a consensus for conservatives to get in the game. because in november, prior to the election, we weren't even in the game. >> so you think it's possible that the path to citizenship may be included in the eventual bill and are you going to be okay with that? >> look. i think we need comprehensive reform. if there is a path to citizenship that has enough of a realization that we have to respect the rule of law -- >> so you pay real fines -- >> and a longer period of time. >> you know, my problem with the bushes that i think in many ways as family people and citizens they're fine. but they charm you. they've always charmed us. george sr. is very likable. w. when he was running everybody thought he was okay. i thought he was okay. i didn't kn
distress. our foreign policy is inseparable from supporting international law. we must assist the genuine, moderate and democratic forces in syria who are in dire need of help and who feel abandoned by the international community. the longer this conflict goes on, the more human suffering, persecution of minorities, radicalization and sectarian conflict there will be. despite these three compelling arguments, there will still be those who say britain should have nothing to do with syria. but we cannot look the other way while human rights are flouted, and it would be height of irresponsibility to ignore potential threat to our own security. so i want to explain to the house today the next step in increasing our support to the syrian people, and i emphasize there may well have to be further steps. we have contributed nearly 140 million pounds in humanitarian aid so far. this is funding foot, clean drinking water, medical stabs, blankets and shelter for many tens of thousands of people. we're supporting the syrian national coalition's own efforts to deliver aid inside syria, and we will see
and unafraid. if there >> shepard: this is the fox report. tonight, usama bin laden's son-in-law reported captured. apparently now in new york city to face a trial. now questions about how this happened, when and where. plus, the white house responds to that question from senator rand paul. is it legal for the government to drone us and kill us right here? >> you can kill an american on american soil, a noncombatant with a drone strike? >> the question he raised was entirely appropriate and should have already been answered. >> i don't this administrations any intention of using drones in the united states. >> the president swore an oath to uphold the constitution and he is bound by the law. >> shepard: tonight, looking to clear up the confusion about targeting americans on u.s. soil. north korea, threatening a preemptive nuclear strike against the united states. >> the pentagon takes the capabilities that the north koreas have seriously. >> even one of north korea's long time allies now saying that country has gone too far. so what now? for dennis rodman's best buddies? thousands of shar
and activities of international law and the domestic laws of many other countries. for north korea, these criminal activities are viewed as necessary to maintain the power of the regime without regard for the fact they are corrosive to international law and order. the question is what steps can we take to combat north korea's illicit dvds encounter after its be used to pressure north korea to abandon nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs. i heard on the news this morning the agreement has been made extensively with china to punish north korea for its missile launching nuclear tests. i hope china will not do what it's done in the past and agree to sanctions and then just erode the sanctions so the sanctions never took hold. i hope china will finally understand the north korean regime is a threat to stability in that region of the world and because as chairman pointed out, north korea is a rogue state, helping countries like syria try to obtain nuclear weapons to collaborate with iran. i want this committee to know that on this issue, there is not a millimeters worth of diff
terror attack in u.s. history. now the son-in-law of osama bin laden is in the very city where al qaeda struck its deadly blow. he's now being held in new york city by federal authorities after being captured in jordan last week. cnn's crime and justice correspondent joe johns is coming in right now. what do you know? >> a member of the al qaeda inner circle, 47 years old, he's married to one of osama bin laden's daughter. he was born in kuwait but stripped from of his citizenship after the 9/11 attacks, though it's not clear at all how much, if anything, he had to do with the 9/11 attacks. he was taken into custody and held in jordan and apparently turned over to u.s. authorities only last week and that is how he made his way to new york. >> this is a guy who was a high school teacher in kuwait who shortly before 9/11 popped up in afghanistan and started, you know, speaking in videotapes, made a number of threatening comments and disappeared. he's had, as i'm air wa, no operation in al qaeda or in the decade since. obviously there are civil charges against him. >> he is expected to app
come into law as soon as next year. carolin roth is in zurich. are the swiss shooting themselves in the head here? >> well, that's hard to say. a lot of people say it could impact switzerland's competitiveness negatively, though other experts have told me this morning that the fundamental res still in place because switzerland has a very low corporate tax rate, still has the right business environment. now, also, we're going to have to wait and see. to what extent these strict pay laws are actually going to be xwlekted because some people say they could be watered down quite significantly. but what it does ensure, of course, is this, you know, lower extent of short-termism in the swiss labor market. so it ensures that no corporate executive from overseas is coming to switzerland just to get that big signing bonus. but i just want to show you what the reaction has been in the newspapers. the french daily says this is a triumph. and you see his corner office as being smashed here. now, another paper says this is the historic coop. of course, they're referencing to the person who is
to save your life and you can't be sued for performing cpr, there's other thinging -- >> california law. >> i agree. if that's the case, we can agree it's an outrage. i have seen this in my own life and probably all seen -- a lot of us seen similar things. older people will have a conversation with the nurses who are around them, their family an they will say, over and over for the final years of their lives, i don't want to be resuscitated. >> isn't there -- that bothers you? >> suggests to me strongly when the family comes out with a statement they had that conversation with the family and had that conversation with the caregiver and if the policy of the place in that situation is to comfort you in the final moments but not -- >> not comforting at all. >> no comfort there. >> she wasn't but -- again, i don't have the full details but the fact the family isn't alarmed. >> i wouldn't want to go there. i wouldn't want to be a guest there. >> it's a tough one. >> a hotel to give you everything except help when you're dying. >>> all right. straight ahead, a sequester side effect. illegal i
